If there was ever a time to pay extra attention to keeping everything as clean as possible, it’s now. So, how to thoroughly clean your car using household disinfectants during this coronavirus crisis? Let’s have a look.
Please read the complete guidance below before commencing your clean.
For your own protection:
Additionally, you’ll also need a broom or vacuum and a bottle of household disinfectant to clean your car.
A lot of cleaning products are in high demand right now, some are even completely sold out. However, not every disinfectant is made the same. For the global blog: Luckily, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a registered list of 300 products that can kill the coronavirus at the beginning of March. Choose a bleach-free product for cleaning your car, otherwise, you might damage the interior.
Another thing you should know is that the effectiveness of your household disinfectant doesn’t just depend on the percentages you see on the bottle or the ingredient list on the back – it’s also affected by the time it is left to work on the surface. Jason Tetro, a microbiologist and the author of The Germ Code advises leaving the product on a hard surface for at least one minute but preferably three minutes.

If you have a steam cleaner and are wondering about its effectiveness for cleaning your car, then we suggest you partner it up with the household disinfectant or some soap. Don’t rely on steaming alone, as coronaviruses are enveloped viruses, meaning they have a protective membrane of fat. That fat is sensitive to detergent, which is why the soap is a good partner to the steam.
Every little helps and it’s very important to ensure your car is as clean as possible, it’s important that you don’t forget yourself. Exactly like you clean your car, take care of your hygiene and well-being by washing your hands and staying at home as much as possible.
